From
£1,799

Memorable parts? The Blue Lagoon Cruise, no question. We did the 3 day cruise 15 years ago, always said we would do it again, this time the 7 day cruise. We worried a bit, wondering if it would be as good, but it was fabulous! We would highly recommend it, if you like small ships. We also had 6 days on the 'mainland' 2 days on Bounty Island, it was okay if you were 20 (our guide said she thought we were 30)nothing on the island but the resort, and extremely loud music! We had a 2 day... (more)Ms Adrian Redford

From
AU $2,695

Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers

From
AU $672.5
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Having a very close encounter with a baby koala, rescued from the main road by our driver/guide Jeremy.
